The Royal Mint — the maker of Britain’s currency dating back over 1,000 years — just unveiled the redesigned 2023 gold Britannia: the first bullion coin to bear King Charles III’s official portrait.
Like its renowned 2021 counterpart, The Royal Mint’s 2023-dated Britannia continues to lead on innovation, showcasing ground-breaking security features that make it the most visually secure coin in the world. These unrivaled security features include holograms, surface animations, tincture lines, and micro-text on both of the coin’s faces. They effectively make the 2023 Britannia inimitable.
Struck in 999.9 fine gold and enhanced with four security features, the Britannia design is as beautiful as ever on this bullion coin. In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, a trident represents her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock, emphasizing the coin’s secure nature. Surface animation reflects the movement of waves and fine details such as the Union flag on Britannia’s shield have been carefully highlighted in the coin’s bullion finish. These added security features both decorate and protect the coin, just as the micro-text that borders the design states – ‘Decus et Tutamen’, which translates as ‘An ornament and a safeguard’.
In conjunction with its easily-verifiable authenticity, its status as one of the lowest-priced sovereignly minted coins available is attractive to many precious metals investors.
